Yesterday, Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Mehmet Oz filed suit against 40 peddlers of dietary supplements for falsely claiming that Winfrey and Oz endorsed these products. Go Team O! Ever since Dr. Oz praised health-promoting properties of the acai berry on Oprah’s show last year, internet marketers have been hard-selling and spamming all of us, intimating that their products were endorsed by Winfrey and/or Oz. In case you’ve been duped, neither has ever sponsored such a product—AND although you may have received a mailbox full of spam claiming that acai berry products could melt off the pounds, the Center for Science and the Public Interest says there is no evidence acai actually helps you lose weight.
Struggles with overeating and weight can be demoralizing and can leave the smartest woman feeling desperate for an answer or for something new to try. The truth is, there is no magic weight loss pill or supplement, but there are effective, lasting, weight loss solutions.
One empowering step you can take is to learn what’s behind your overeating. What triggers it? Why do you find yourself eating more than your body needs? What has prevented weight loss efforts from working in the past? It’s not as simple as a berry, but the answers to these questions will lead you towards the REAL tools you need to lose those pounds.
Take good care,
